Terrain

So when I was in college I had a great roommate who introduced me to 40k. At one point I was an Resident Assistant (see apartment manager) for the school I was attending. The best part about it was having a three bedroom apartment but only being required to have one roommate. So we turned the third room into a war room. We built our own 4' by 8' table for gaming. We then began a project of building our own 4' by 4' city board. The board was awesome and although never painted, it was just about structurally finished. The sad part is that I stopped being an RA in December and as such we weren't allowed to keep the nice apartment. We moved to another apartment and we didn't think we would be able to have the room for the city board let alone the gaming table. Little did we know that we ended up getting a third roommate who was a friend and had no trouble getting the room for a board. The problem was that we threw the board away along with the table.


Now all I have is a few pictures of the board and lately I reminisce about making the board. It was definitely a two man project but now I know alot of the short cuts that we had to learn first hand. I will get the pictures uploaded in the next day or so to show off the slight skill that I had.

I envy you! I want to have that much time, space and effort...

It's a real shame the board got thrown away. At least you know you can do it however, I would find a project of that size quite daunting!

Woah that's a heck of a nice table, such a shame you chucked it mate.

You never know, you may have room for an even bigger table on day.
